A Voting Producer is a person who plants, or causes to be planted a corn crop in which the person has an ownership interest, with the intent that upon maturity the crop will be harvested in the next available or immediately preceding growing season. Producers have to reside in the county and have not requested a corn refund during the preceding year.
